Zdenek was our tour guide and it ended up just being me and little brother with was amazing! He gave us a Old Town history tour too everything was very interesting, plus we got to walk through shortcuts which showed us a different point of view and feeling than those overcrowded streets!Highly recommend

Our guide did an excellent job managing a disparate group of people on a busy afternoon. He was extremely knowledgeable and clearly passionate about Prague.

Took the Jewish History Walking Tour with Jan. I'm not Jewish, but I do work in the field of Holocaust Studies, so I have at least some passing knowledge of the religion. I would hope, though, that a Jew never goes on this tour, because Jan's lack of knowledge he referred to Jewish religious observance as their mass and outright stereotyping Jews like to stay together would be both infuriating and painful. While I know it is difficult to find a Jew to lead this tour, it should not be too much to ask that the tour guide has at least some knowledge of Judaism and Jewish practices. At the very least, the guide cannot perpetuate the very stereotypes and prejudices that laid waste to Jewish communities throughout Europe.
